Looking to Play Golf in College?

High school golf is no longer enough to get interest from college recruiters and scouts. There are too many players getting ranked on a national scale by playing on Junior Golf Tours outside of High School that are running 2-day, 36-hole, JGS Ranked competitive tournaments. To become a JGS Ranked Tournament, certain criteria must be met, ensuring a consistent national ranking system. JGS Rankings are the first step to getting recognized by any college, DI – DIII, and all of Buckeye Junior Golf Tour events are Junior Golf Scoreboard Ranked! If you are looking to play golf in college and are looking for an athletic scholarship, JGS is a great resource for any junior golfer!
